'Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues, but the parent of all the others.' 


Gratitude is feeling thankful for what you have and what others have done for you.  It means enjoying the simple things and enjoying now.  You can show gratitude to others by saying thank you.  Gratitude brings joy into your heart – a feeling a bit like happy bubbles inside as you remember the good things in your life.
We can also refer to gratitude as: thankfulness and happiness.  The opposite of gratitude is taking things for granted, or having a feeling of entitlement, which means thinking that you alone deserve all the best things and that nothing is ever fair. 


I can identify lots of things to be grateful for in my life.
